The Sunday Times best seller.

Entertaining short story, brilliantly narrated by Nicholas Bell.

You lose your marbles when you've got a dog; that's what happens...

One winter's afternoon, Stephen Foster walks into a dog re-homing center with the intention of picking up a retired greyhound. Instead, he acquires an abandoned lurcher pup. Foster's knowledge of dogs is so vague that he has to look up 'lurcher' in key reference work The Giant Book of the Dog, to find out what sort of animal is coming to join the family. His research counts for little: the new arrival does not conform to any known breed standard, or indeed any standard whatsoever that might be considered dog-normal.

Walking Ollie is for anyone who has ever loved a dog - a touching, and often hysterically funny, account of one man's attempt to turn a decidedly difficult animal into something resembling a domestic pet. Download and start listening now!

    " I abandon this book. I know it is supposed to be funny, but just isn't for me. I get a feeling of wanting to do anything else when it is my only reading choice left. Sorry, Mr. Foster. It just didn't do it for me. "

    " Interesting read, esp for anyone with a dog with issues. Found a lot of humor and hope for George. "

    " It was ok. Nothing special, nothing that really grabbed or moved me. "

    " Book on CD... I admit, I didn't get through the whole thing but I just couldn't. This was an the British version of Marley and Me but without the charm. I bet it has a lot to do with the reader, he wasn't very good in my opinion but I also have no ambition to go out and actually read this now. "
